L' Age D' Or is hardly a comedy. It is a serious attempt to make a serious surrealist film. It does not have the bite of the Andalusian Dog but it is some what sad that Bunuel hated the religion he was raised with. Dali quickly returned to the church. and was kicked out of the group. Bunuel had to go to Mexico once the war started and his mother had to cut back on his allowance. He had to lean how to function in the commercial film studios in Mexico but eventually had a chance to make some very interesting films- none of which were comedies.
